A spokesperson for the city said regarding the situation, "[Our] original illustration [and the character of Pikachū] are different, and we consider copyright not to be a problem."

Pikachu has black tips on the top of its ears! So they're completely different. Smile

It does look like Pikachu, so yeah, better change the design. Might I suggest something along the lines of a bee?

Pikachu Lookalike Appears


>USE POKEBALL

At the rate Nintendo's been engineering the little beasts the last few years, it was just a matter of time before they found a way to reproduce outside the lab. Rolling Eyes

Thanks Nintendo.

Even though I knew it wasn't Pikachu, my first reaction was thinking it really was Pikachu. I wouldn't say it was too original.

Normally I don't see the resemblance, but this is a little too obvious... They should have known this was coming.

lol pikachu look alike.

Why would you want your 'eco' friendly city mascot to be an electric type pokemon. I mean, they throw around electricity like it's nothing to them, how wasteful Razz
